History Research Centre

COVID-19 update – 18 March 2020

We have temporarily closed our facilities to protect our volunteers, members and the public, and to assist with the wider efforts to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Maldon District Museum and History Research Centre are now closed to the public until further notice.

Our volunteers will continue to handle requests for information and research. Please contact us via email at hrc@maldonmuseum.com.au. The telephone has a message system but monitoring will be irregular so it won’t be the best option.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.

Our Centre houses an extensive collection of Maldon District records, images and reference material which may be useful for your research.

Our researchers are volunteers, and all research fees received are used for collection care and resource improvement.
